Deshaun Watson is no stranger to giving back to the community and this time he's helping out his hometown during the COVID-19 outbreak.
Gainesville, Georgia residents took to social media to recognize Watson's efforts in helping local first responders, doctors and nurses.
"This humble, respectful, confident young man would never toot his own horn," a Gainesville area resident posted on Facebook. "We have touted him for years as one of our Hometown Heroes. Today he is feeding all the First Responders in the City & County, and also some Nurses at the hospital. God bless this man’s health & career."
According to another Gainesville-area social media post, Watson is partnering with a local restaurant to feed 150 first responders, doctors and nurses throughout the week.
